is the game plan. we hear from caterpillar. we got dealer numberes from this company. they were not good at all. they were distinctly not so hot, reminding me why. we know they had a gigantic acquisition in china. we know estimates are way too high. we even got an upgrade this week that said that. so in this market, that will be how much should we buy? i'm not kidding, how much should we buy on weakness? that is if we get weakness below where caterpillar is already trading. this market loves you. and all great bull markets have that. they all say, well, look, that was bad, but we see a glass half full here. so please pay close attention to cat. we're going to gauge the progress as she brings out value, unloads pieces because it was so poorly managed. the other night on jim cramer at twitter, someone asked why they didn't buy yahoo!. that would be a great idea. you have one darn cheap stock and a chief executive who knows how to take on google which apple has to do because she's from google. tuesday, we get the results from emc. okay? they've downgraded hardware stocks ask technology

. finally there's caterpillar, today's high-profile earnings name. i want to play it right up front here. when i saw c.a.t.'s numbers, i blanched. they were weaker than i looked for and the outlook wasn't as bullish as i hoped. nobody cared. they're cutting inventories, things will get better later in the year, stock leaped a couple of bucks. when you get a situation where a company reports a not great number and doesn't get hammered but instead goes higher, you can say, oh, that's ridiculous. however, consider when honeywell reported on friday, the u.s. is starting to grow in low single digits. europe's stabilizing and china is growing at 10%. how can we not simply dismiss c.a.t.'s guidance as conservative and buy the stock? and that's what people do. here's the bottom line, you can read through the positive headlines about retail investors coming back, you can play the knee-jerk contrarian game. oh, so they're back, it must be bad. or you can look at the bigger picture, an evolution of an important republican to stop the economic uncertainty. the possibility of immigration reform. prod
